The next day we took a bus to Eze-le-Village by way of the middle corniche(cliff road.) This is a view from the bus of St. Jean Cap Ferrat.

A view of the Mediterranean Sea and the road beneath us.

Another view of the coast, possibly the village of Beaulieu-sur-mer.

We are getting close to the village of Eze and can see the castle ruins and a church spire.

We are now in the village and can see the church and the ruins of a castle, demolished by Louis XIV in 1706.

As we walked up to the church, we are able to look down on a private garden with a "zoo" of metal sculptures of elephants, deer and other animals.

We arrive at the Chapel of the White Penitents there. Founded in the 14th c. when the plague was rife, this chapel was the seat of the White Penitents brotherhood. They were laymen dressed in white robe and hoods who performed deeds of repentance, helping the sick and the poor.

From the vantage point of the graveyard near this chapel, we could see the coast and possibly the village of Beaulieu-sur-Mer.

The Chateau, which had been the winter hideaway of the Swedish royal family, is now the Hotel of the Golden Goat.

The bougainvillea was spectacular.

After lunch in the village of Eze we boarded a bus to Monaco.
